ICLEI World Congress 2018
Montréal
Montréal, Canada

In our increasingly urban world, cities and their surrounding regions have a growing influence on global patterns of production, consumption, innovation and technological development. At the same time, they are experiencing rapid change, brought about by urbanization, climate change, shifting demographics and growing inequities that will continue to impact the urban environment.

What happens now in and around urban areas will define the course of global sustainable development this century. Collective action on the most pressing urban issues of our time is critical.

At the ICLEI World Congress 2018 in June 2018, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability and Ville de Montréal will bring together hundreds of mayors, governors, city staff, international organizations, business leaders and researchers to share their ideas, successes and challenges in advancing sustainable urban development worldwide.

Held every three years, the ICLEI World Congress is among the top platforms for peer-to-peer exchange on the latest ideas and innovations designed to advance sustainable development in our urban world. Together, participants will examine key issues and solutions - from the circular economy to nature-based solutions and systemic resilience - set to play a key role in the development of our cities and regions.

Join the action in Montréal on 19 through 22 June 2018. For more information visit the conference website.

Putting the Basque Declaration into practice
Supporting city climate adaptation with the RESIN tools
Palacio Euskalduna Conference Centre / Abandoibarra Avenue 4
Bilbao, Spain

In 2016, hundreds of local government practitioners and leaders from 40 countries gathered in Bilbao to endorse the Basque Declaration, outlining new pathways for European cities and towns to create productive, sustainable and resilient cities for a liveable and inclusive Europe, and supporting a range of commitments, including adaptation to climate change and disaster risk reduction.


Two years on, Bilbao returns to this central agenda, bringing city practitioners together with researchers to discuss and learn about practical approaches to building climate resilience. The cities of Paris (France) and Bilbao will open a dialogue with their peers from Zadar (Croatia), Padova and Alba (Italy), Almada (Portugal), Athens (Greece), London (UK), Strasbourg (France) and Warsaw (Poland). 


Why attend?



  • Hear how your organisation can more easily and effectively make decisions to build resilience and adapt to climate change as part of a coordinated framework.

  • Meet local government representatives and researchers working together for resilient infrastructure across Europe.

  • Find out more about practical tools currently under development which can help to identify risks, assess their interdependencies and impacts, and select effective adaptation solutions - now and in the future.


Attendance is free! Register online here by Friday 22 June.

RGS-IBG Conference

The chair of this year's conference is Paul Milbourne (Cardiff University, UK), who has chosen 'Geographical landscapes / changing landscapes of geography' as the conference theme. This broad theme provides an opportunity to explore ideas of landscape within geographical scholarship, the popularity of landscape beyond the academy, and the shifting landscapes of geography as an academic discipline.


The RESIN project will be presented under the title "Climate adaptation as co-productive transformation: exploring the interfaces of science, policy and practice in multi-scalar contexts".


Registration for the conference is now open! The provisional programme is now live, and includes details of days and times for sessions. You can find out more about planning your attendance at the conference here.
